                            Bah. A moment's trifle. Let computers do what they're good at.

                            perl -pe 's/(\d+)/chr($1)/ge'


                            If people didn't cheat and use standard punctuation it would be easier :)




                            Now, people who can read the runes from the Ultima games like plain
                            English... *they're* scary.

                              Actually, I just wrote a Perl script that converted it to text and a
                              procmail recipe that detected it and piped it through the Perl
                              script. I don't even see the encoded form any more.
